Alum Julia Haft-Candell at Candice Madey
Alum Julia Haft-Candell (BA, ‘05) is featured in the inaugural exhibition of Candice Madey Gallery titled “There Will Come Soft Rains.”
In addition to Haft-Candell, Uri Aran, ektor garcia, Adam Henry, Steffani Jemison, Sahar Khoury, Marlene McCarty, Joan Nelson, Em Rooney and Didier William are participating. The exhibition title comes from a short story by Ray Bradbury published in The Martian Chronicles in 1950, in which a fully automated house continues its daily routines devoid of human life. The domestic setting symbolizes humanity’s more ambitious attempts to control time and the environment, and the disastrous outcome of excessive productivity, consumption, and competition. The story concludes with the mainframe repeating the same date and time endlessly, linear concepts of time and progress having become obsolete. Rather, entropy and nature reclaim what remains of built human architecture.
“There Will Come Soft Rains” will be on display September 12 – November 7, 2020 online. The gallery is open to the public Thursday–Saturday, 11am to 6pm, in accordance with city guidelines and with enhanced safety measures in place. A limited number of visitors will be permitted at a time, so advance appointments are recommended.
